The First Semester of 2018 has been a successful period for the Aliet Green’s Fair Trade Projects. We have intensively worked on our new creative direction – providing beneficial projects for our producers as reported on the Fair Trade Semester Report.
We have continued to focus on our core commodity of Organic Fair Trade Coconut Sugar which has driven volume growth.
Sales of other certified products also grew rapidly and we began to evolve our model to work in new and innovative ways with Aliet Green’s producers.
The higher the demand, the more Fair Trade Fund can be distributed. It has to be followed with the higher and stable quality.
For Aliet Green, high quality always matters as we are the Quality Leader for supplying our Organic and Fair Trade Coconut Sugar and other specialty products from Indonesia.
Below, we would like to happily share our First Semester Short Report on the Use of Fair Trade Funds received. We have used EURO as the currency for all Fair Trade Premium Fund Report.
We would like to thank every single producer and consumer, staff member who made Fair Trade Projects in the First Semester of 2018 the success it was. We laid the foundation for equally successful Second Semester of 2018 and 2019, and look forward to the challenges and opportunities that come our way as we continue on our mission to change trade.
